In Reply to: More Info on father by Robert L Felan of 47

Hi. This looks like the family in 1930:

1930 United States Federal Census
about Robert Felan
Name:        Robert Felan
Home in 1930:        Sweetwater, Nolan, Texas
View Map
Age:        4
Estimated Birth Year:        abt 1926
Relation to Head of House:        Stepson
Mother's Name:        Petra Lopez
Race:        Mexican
Household Members:        
Name        Age
Santiago Lopez        29 b. 1901 Mexico, par b. Mexico; laborer, railroad
Petra Lopez        25 b. 1905 Mexico, par b. Mexico
Irene Lopez        2 4/12 b. 1927 Texas
Andru Felan        8 -stepson- b. 1922 Texas
Robert Felan        4 2/12 b. 1926 Texas

Here is your father's SS death record:

Social Security Death Index
about Robert M. Felan
Name:        Robert M. Felan
SSN:        454-12-8850
Last Residence:        93657 Sanger, Fresno, California, United States of America
Born:        18 Aug 1925
Died:        2 Feb 1991
State (Year) SSN issued:        Texas (Before 1951)

If I were you I would order his SS application. It should list his father's name, hopefully his birth father and not his step-father.

This looks like his brother's death record:

California Death Index, 1940-1997
about Andrew Martinez Felan
Name:        Andrew Martinez Felan
Social Security #:        454128851
Sex:        Male
Birth Date:        30 Nov 1921
Birthplace:        Texas
Death Date:        29 Oct 1997
Death Place:        Fresno
Mother's Maiden Name:        Holguin

I say that because he died in the same exact town as Robert:

Social Security Death Index
about Andrew M. Felan Sr.
Name:        Andrew M. Felan Sr.
SSN:        454-12-8851
Last Residence:        93657 Sanger, Fresno, California, United States of America
Born:        30 Nov 1921
Died:        29 Oct 1997
State (Year) SSN issued:        Texas (Before 1951)

I don't know why they had different mother's maiden names. Is that possible? Sorry I couldn't find more. Annie
